lyrics

she goes to work after school
she never learned the golden rule
cause hearts to drop like a violent rain
and the boys will never get them back again

flinty stare like two thunderclouds
have a man crying out loud
she hits like a boom in the room and then it's too late
you thought it was a date, but it looks like your tomb

a heartbreaker, but lord you take her
for fifty dollars, she'll make you holler
cryin for your mama and a baby bottle
don't let her take ya, oh she'll break ya
she's unstable and they don't trust her
but they've never been able to bust her
she's a high-paid teenage hustler

she's alone and not close with her mom
who stays drunk all the time on red pills and white wine
her daddy left when she was only three
he told her, "baby girl, i love you but i gotta be free."

another soul lost in another small town
choking on the dust of dead fields and creeping rust
that cling to cars that long ago sat still
she wants to get away but knows she probably never will

a heartbreaker, but lord you take her
for twenty dollars, she'll make you holler
cryin for your mama and a baby bottle
don't let her take ya, oh she'll break ya
she's unstable and they don't trust her
but they've never been able to bust her
she's a high-paid teenage hustler

online all the time
her profile she's just turned nineteen
she'll striptease, do as you please
and might show you everything... everything

she don't do drugs doesn't even drink
only has sex for money, honey don't you even think
she doesn't have you wrapped around her finger all dressed in pink
about to take you to the cleaners before you even blink

a heartbreaker, but lord you take her
for fifty dollars, she'll make you holler
cryin for your mama and a baby bottle
don't let her take ya, oh she'll break ya
she's unstable and they don't trust her
but they've never been able to bust her
she's a high-paid teenage hustler
